The base of a tall Australian Pine tree lays toppled along the southern tip of Sanibel Island, Florida, USA, in one of Sanibelís municipal parks. The powdery white sand of this beach shifts and is regularly blown by storms; this tree is a testament to the power of distant hurricane Sandy in 2012, battering these shores despite itís distant center, prior to the heavy devastation it visited upon the Northern states. The tree has become a stationary monument, weathered like driftwood.
This tree is part of a beautiful island landscape only a momentís walk from the historic Sanibel lighthouse.
